Just a Rag Doll

Hello, Dear Ones! Today I have a tale to tell of a little rag doll.
She had been made with love for a very special person.

This little rag doll had such a sweet little face.
Her eyes were shiny and bright.
Her smile would light up your day!
And her hair ~ oh, her pretty red hair!


Everyone wanted to touch her hair!


Everyone who saw this little rag doll just fell head over heels in love with her.


She was devoted to God and many times you would see her little head bowed in prayer.

Her apparel was always so neat and clean.
She only had this one dress and even though it would embarrass most of us
because it was made from a kitchen dish towel,
it didn't seem to bother her at all.
She almost looked regal in this little dress.


She also had a lovely crocheted collar at her neck.
The collar had little flowers on the edges of the trim.


Actually, this little rag doll is only six years old.
I made her and seven others just like her six years ago
for my Mother's 80th birthday.
I had invited her little friends from church to celebrate her birthday with us.
I thought it would be sweet to give them all a little present
so I made these little rag dolls for each of them.

I made sure I had a rag doll too! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Rag Doll
When she was just a kid.
her clothes were hand-me-downs.
(Hand-me-down)
They always laughed at her
when she came into town.
Called her rag doll,
Little rag doll.
Such a pretty face should be dressed in lace.
Ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh. Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh.
(Shag rag doll)
I'd change her sad rags
into glad rags if I could (if I could).
My folks won't let me
cause they say that she's no good.
She's a rag doll, such a rag doll;
though I love her so,
I can't let her know.
Ooh ooh ooh ooh oh.
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oh.
Aah aah aah aah aah.
I love you just they way you are.
